Upswell Community Dinners demonstrate firsthand how food and mission can go together. You’ll enjoy a smorgasbord of local dishes and discussion about education, health, the arts, economic development, and more. Sit down and break bread with strangers, go home with new friends, ideas – and maybe even a solution or two.
Inside/Out Tours (Wednesday, Nov 15): $60
Designed in collaboration with community leaders, these half-day tours take you on a journey of social innovation into the heart of the host city’s most dynamic neighborhoods where you’ll have the chance to participate like a local, rather than just observe as an outsider.
